Shayla & milk contamination
Well, Shayla pediatrician's office called yesterday. Her doctor researched the issues with melamine and the milk contamination and doesn't feel there's any real danger. Melamine (as she and I both read) metabolizes in the body, so there is nothing to test for as far as that goes...however, her kidney function can still be tested by blood work. So, for peace of mind, when I take her back for her 24 month checkup, I'm gonna have that checked. She said the medical issue she had earlier this year, when we had to take her to the emergency room, would have progressively gotten worse and not just stopped had it been a kidney issue (that made me feel better realizing that). I had also been copied on many e-mails from our local FCC (Families with Children from China) group where other pediatricians were saying the same kind of things. Whew, I do feel better.
